Charlie Watson Remembered At Street Rededication

Local leaders, business owners, and community members gathered at Charlie Watson Lane on Wednesday to rededicate the lane and enjoy memories of Watson's legendary character.

Despite the cold and rain, spirits were high and everyone was happy to take a few moments to remember a man who meant so much to so many.

Thank you to everyone who voted in and supported the Benjamin Moore Main Street Matters contest for helping us honor Charlie Watson with a modern sign!
